Paleo Pumpkin Gingerbread Cake with Maple-Vanilla Frosting
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, so I’m delighted that dinner on November 24 is just 27 meals away! We’re keeping it low key this year: It’s just Dave, Smudge, and I digging into a smallish feast of roast duck (with a stuffing made of pork and apples), my paleo cranberry waldorf salad, green beans with bacon, velvety butternut squash (a new Well Fed recipe!), and this pumpkin gingerbread cake. I think this cake tastes best when it’s chilled. It takes on the denser texture of a cake bar, and the frosting tastes and feels like bakery icing. However, you might like it at room temperature or even warmed a bit. Experiment! You can’t really go wrong, it is cake, after all.

Several years ago, on the Friday after Thanksgiving, I wanted to use my leftovers for something other than a turkey sandwich or turkey soup. I opened up all the containers in the fridge and came up with this. It's a family favorite and easy to create. It's also easy to put together from scratch, without using leftovers. I've provided amounts as a guideline but the recipe is very forgiving and can be adjusted or modified for more or less, depending on how many ingredients you have on hand. Also - if your stuffing isn't very savory, you can add more herbs to either your turkey mixture or your stuffing mixture - or both!!

This recipe gives a 'wink and a nod' toward my favorite dinner Thanksgiving with turkey, stuffing, gravy and yes, even the green bean casserole. Add your own green beans,cranberry sauce and some mashed potatoes and you've got all the flavors of Thanksgiving on your plate in very little time.

When my twins were two years old I was working evenings. They loved pasta and cheese and it was easy for my hubby to fix. But by itself it is not too healthy. I devised a series of recipes based on a box (or two) of Shells and Cheese and various cans of food. The shells and cheese called for in these recipes are the kind with the cheese sauce, not the powder kind. In this recipe you can also use your Thanksgiving leftovers instead of the canned turkey.

This clever recipe gives a second life to your holiday leftovers as something completely new and delicious. Shredded Monterey Jack cheese is also delicious in this homey dish.

I know a casserole from the NON casserole gal. Well, this one is quite good and well liked by my son and several friends who continue to make it. Since this is on my emergency meal list ... which I consider when I don't have time and just want to throw something together for a few people. This comes to mind. Now I use some fresh ingredients and some boxed or store bought, but you could certainly make everything from scratch for this. Box of stuffing, some fresh bacon, onions and mushrooms, a box of winter squash or butternut squash, and a jar of cranberry sauce and last ... a good quality gravy. Now I usually have some in the freezer, but if not, there are some descent brands out there. Yes all together in one large pan and baked.

This is my attempt at encapsulating my favourite scents of the Thanksgiving holiday season using flour and yeast. Baking these in a 9x13 rectangular pan eliminates the need for precise portion and shaping control, and keeps the edges soft and moist. Makes 8 large (sandwich size) or 12 dinner rolls

Thought of this as all the fixings were in the fridge and it was dinner time.
